  1. Wrong profile picture: Outlook for Mac falsely assumes all connected accounts are 'me'

    BUG: Outlook for Mac adds the email address of all connected accounts to an automatic ME contact On My Computer, the profile picture of which then overrides the correct profile picture for all emails associate with each account.

  2. Send Out of Office replies to a domain

    I have the option to send OOO replies to all or to my contacts. I would also like the option to send OOO to any user of a particular domain. I have customers who may not be in my contacts list but I know the domain name that someone would be sending from.This would give better control than sending to all external users.

  3. Add word count when drafting emails

    It will be great if a word count is added to the bottom of the screen for outlook for Mac users (similar to Microsoft Word). This will be a very effective tool in making all users respect everyone's time by being short and precise.

  4. Set signature via Configuration Profile

    Allow global signature setting via configuration file (sent from MDM). This would mean my organisation could mandate signature styles.

  5. To be able to send windows compatible hyperlinks to files.

    When I send hyperlinks to files from Outlook from Mac Windows users cannot open it, due to the different nature of hyperlink creation of the two OS. I'd like to be able to create a hyperlink to a file on a Mac that Windows users can open.

  6. conditional formatting

    --> Outlook MAC Business

    Please insert conditional formatting. I would like to change the preview text of an e-mail if an e-mail has been assigned to a category

  8. Please make outlook remember emails that are 'safe' which contain HTML content.

    In Windows Outlook you can classify emails from known sources as 'safe' without having to add them to your contacts was you have to in Mac version. I dont want to add Cosco or Honda to my contacts, but I will want to receive mailings, and not have to click on 'Download Pictures' every time.

  9. Daily out of office after business hours

    Why is it so difficult to set up an out of office that triggers daily after business hours?
    Currently, if I have to schedule an out of office that triggers everyday between 5:00 PM and 9:00 AM, I actually have to manually set up the Out of Office daily!

    This is just a pain. There HAS to be a simpler way to get this done!

  10. allow recall of a sent email on all versions of Outlook for Mac

    There's no recall for sent email. On other platforms you can actually choose how many seconds you have to recall a mssg. I cant believe we don't have this option

  12. Various inboxes under "all accounts" as an overview and show number of unread messages (as in older versions)

    When using various mail accounts, an overview under "all accounts" of all inboxes would be very helpful as in older Outlook versions. Working with various mail accounts in the new version of Outlook is not user friendly. In particular, you do not see how many unread messages there are other than after opening each of the mail accounts. I am using four mail accounts on a daily basis for various businesses.

  13. junk folder rule or automation

    Allow us to automatically empty the "Junk" folder based on a schedule or rule. This would be similar to "auto-archive" in the Windows version, so that the Junk folder doesn't just fill up forever on a POP account (which I use in my work). Yet another request to make the Mac Outlook resemble the Windows version.

  14. internal and external email tab or view.

    Create a tab (or view) that allows me to easily switch between a message list that contains internal and external emails. I could see a tab next to "other" or a special filter under the Filter Email button on the Ribbon.

  15. Allow "Filter Email" status to be remembered when switching between e-mail accounts

    Allow "Filter Email" status to be remembered when switching between e-mail accounts.
    Presently you have to redo "Filter E-mail" anytime you switch between inboxes. For example, if I look at Email Account #1 with the "Unread" filter on, then switch momentarily to Email Account #2 to read an e-mail, when I come back to the same folder of Email Account #1, the filter has automatically been removed and I have to redo it.

  16. Provide the ability to export emails to a common format (CSV, JSON XML etc)

    Outlook Mac only allows you to export emails to another .olm file which is useless then you need to move the data to different applications. Please provide the above option, even if it excludes attachments.

  17. Bring back the option to send mass emails by having the drop down contain all contacts in a, b, c, etc. Can't edit registry on a Mac!

    Bring back the option to access all contacts from the drop down menu to send mass emails on Mac. The registry can't be edited on a Mac so Mac users are limited to the most recent 8 contacts and can't access any other contacts under the letter A, for example. It used to work this way until the idiots at Microsoft changed it recently. The only reason Microsoft did this is to make it harder for Mac users to work with Microsoft's software.

  18. Font size for reading plain-text messages

    In recent Office 365 versions (16.2x) of Outlook, the displayed font size for viewing incoming plain-text messages is much smaller than the size for viewing HTML messages or for composing plain-text messages. This problem did not occur in the volume-licensed versions (16.1x) of Outlook. A workaround is to hit "reply" rather than "open," but this is less than ideal. It would be good to go back to the earlier formatting.

  19. disable a specific email account

    Allow users to disable a specific email account, in order to avoid getting a number of error windows in case one account cannot retrieve messages / connect to the email server.

  20. Enhance the "Create Appointment" feature

    Enhance the "Create Appointment" feature to create a calendar entry and after clicking the appointment the former selected email should be opened instead of a typical calendar entry. Additionally change the data selection field to show the whole calendar instead of a date selection option. During the creation process is not clear if a potential slot is not already used.
